Manuel Fuentes, 27, was killed in a motor vehicle accident in Charlotte, NC on September 25, 2020. The wreck was on North Sharon Amity Road at 9:55 p.m.

The preliminary investigation indicates the Manuel was driving a Honda when it struck a raised, concrete center-median. The Honda then struck a concrete curb on the right side of the roadway and then returned to strike the center median. 

The Honda then crossed lanes and into the path of a Cadillac. After the Honda struck the Cadillac, the driver of the Honda Manuel was ejected from the vehicle.

The drivers of both vehicles sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash, and transported them to the hospital where Manuel was pronounced deceased.
